The Lazy Frogg

New lakeside spot Lazy Frogg has opened on Morse Reservoir (409. W. Jackson St., Cicero, 317-843-9100), serving up a mix of pub grub and fine-dining options ranging from flatbreads and burgers to steak and seafood with a focus on ‘from scratch’ cooking using the best local ingredients.

It sports a fun atmosphere, plenty of outside seats, an outside bar and shrimp hut with live music a couple times a week and if you are boating on lake, they offer boat parking.

The Lazy Frogg has areas for both families as well as the over 21 crowd. They offer a full bar with a great wine selection and some incredible signature cocktails, draft and bottled beers and several local and craft options.

Currently open Tuesday-Sunday at 4:00pm, they have plans to expand the hours during the summer months with added lunch and brunch menus on the weekends.  If you want to make sure you have a seat, they do take reservations.RECIPES:
